Testimonials

We’re honored to share a few testimonials from participants at the 5k and from our marathon team members. We love hearing from you!  Your good word and encouraging thoughts give us the Strength, Passion, and Focus to continue “fighting melanoma every step of the way

“I was able to participate in your 5k in October. It was extremely emotional for me as I drove in the parking lot to see the mass of people participating in your event. The cause is so personal … I just wept in my car for awhile before I pulled myself together and was a part of something that I will remember forever. You all are amazing and such an inspiration! Thank you for your efforts, and I applaud your success for a cause which needs to find an answer.”
